This section contains common information about alerts available in Network Eagle.
Network Eagle supports a rich variety of alert mechanisms. It supports various email alert options, sound alerts and much more. You can use the standard Windows net send mechanism as a Network Eagle alert or even write your own batch scripts to be executed a service failure or a recovery situation occurs.
Alert is run when the special condition is satisfied. These conditions depend on the check status and can be one of the following:
|On Recovery||On Every Recovery||On Failure||On Every Failure|
After a check is finished and its status is switched from checking to failed or successful, the check manager tries to detect alerts that should be be activated. In case there are such alerts, the checking process is paused to activate alerts.
Note: Due to alert-specific settings (in some situations), alert activation can take significant time. Since counting down check intervals starts only after all alerts are activated, such situations can lead to a big difference between actual intervals between service checks and intervals set for this check.
Alerts are activated in the order they are defined.
